"Winning series of light whodunits."--"Publishers Weekly""" "Daisy and her family are amusing characters.... something light for the fireside on a winter's day."--"Romantic Times"
In December 1923, Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher yields to the demands of her mother and the needs of her writing career and brings her family to an old Cornish estate for Christmas. The estate, occupied by the poor relations of the ancestral lord, has a rich history of lore, ghost stories, and festering resentments - some or all of which leaves them all trapped in a house with a corpse and a murderer.
